Over the envy



For the longest time I'd read other blogs in envy. How did these women always manage to find such great buys at Goodwill, yard sales, thrift shops and flea markets? I always felt like a failure as I walked away empty-handed time after time after time.

Well friends, I finally feel like my fortune has changed! Lately it seems, that almost every time I walk into Goodwill, I walk out with a great buy or two! 

I have to be honest, it's such a rush! And it makes me giddy with excitement, too. :)

Here's what I've found lately.....


Antique birdhouse, $3.99


Gorgeous wood mirror, $8.99
(somebody screwed some ugly hooks onto the bottom of it, that I easily removed)

Vintage-looking lantern, $2.99

And my big splurge/steal/buy this week....?

This!



I found this baby at Goodwill for $30. It matches our nursery furniture perfectly and there's not a scratch or blemish on her! She came with other cushions, but I switched them out for these, which we all ready had on hand. I'm so excited to rock our new baby in this great glider! :)

Have you made any great finds lately?

P.S. I'm linking up with Linda at Coastal Charm today.

  1. SO jealous of your glider find! What a steal! :) That will be the ONE thing we invest in when baby #2 happens ... our current one is so beat up!

  2. love the chair, I've been thinking of getting one, but not sure I want to spend ~$200 on a chair that I don't have room for anyways. Maybe I should check the local thrift store.
